Window Managers Awesome 2.2 has been released. "Awesome is a floating and tiling window manager initialy based on a dwm code rewriting. It's extremely fast, small, dynamic and awesome. Windows can be managed in several layouts: tiled, maximized, dwindle, spiral, floating... Each layout can be applied on the fly, optimizing the environment for the application in use and the task performed. Managing windows in tiled mode assures that no space will be wasted on your screen. No gaps, no overlap. Other layouts can be used for different purpose. If you do not want to use the tiling management, you can use the floating layout wich will let you organize your windows as you wish, like any other window manager."

it has all of the feature-lightness of dwm,

If you compare features you'll see that Awesome adds features missing in dwm. Basically if you liked dwm, but wished it wasn't quite as feature light as it is then you should probably take a look at Awesome.

What do the guys at suckless think about the fork?

At a guess that it is a huge pile of bloat (I mean adding features...really) written by a complete nood ;)
